Goodbye York, hello Toronto.
March 6, 1834
it measures 22" x 22" x 1"
Here is a beautiful old framed behind glass lithograph commemorating the incorporation of the city of Toronto.
It is in amazing condition, appears to have been framed right away. No major cracks scratches damage to the frame or glass. The lithograph itself is in like new condition, colours all nice and vibrant, good dark blacks.
Not sure exactly when this litho was done but I do know that colour lithography was not in wide commercial use until 1860. So between then and 1960, if I were to guess. ;)
It really is a beautiful and historic piece and would look good in any room anywhere.
The town was incorporated on March 6, 1834, reverting to the name of "Toronto" to distinguish it from New York City, as well as about a dozen other localities named 'York' in the province (including York County in which Toronto was situated), and to disassociate itself from the negative connotation of dirty Little York, a common nickname for the town by its residents
